The tradition of storytelling has the marvellous ability to step outside or, indeed, manipulate the constraints of time. This is an important element of my work as a writer being presented here that captures a personal moment of a childhood adventure, remembered as an adult, on a dramatic Caithness coastline. Upon reflection, a thoughtless activity that could have ended quite tragically, to then become absorbed by the tale of Garor – the Norse for dwelling place and the facets this conjures of survival, conscience and being a part of a greater existence.
